staggering... China earthquake toll tops 40,000
we get used to hearing big numbers bandied about in today's news media, but the death toll from china's earthquake and the number of people homeless is impossible to contemplate for us leading our daily lives and watching tv, going out to get some food and coming home.
5 milion people homeless who once had somewhere to go.
and china thought the summer olympics was a world showpiece for how far it has come as a nation.
